Please join us on April 29th at 6:00 pm to watch the Virginia Tech Graduate Students’ presentation of the elevated Near Miss survey app. The elevated Near Miss survey will be able to record incidents in Alexandria, Arlington and Fairfax County and mark each event by GIS mapping on ESRI's ARCGIS platform. The Near Miss data entries can also be displayed over Virginia's Traffic Records Electronic Data System (TREDS) crash data throughout the region.

Please join us April 29th at 6:00pm for the presentation at: https://virginiatech.zoom.us/my/tomwsanchez

Also, feel free to share the link to this event with other people who you think might have an interest in this technology to help make our streets safer for pedestrians, bicyclists and all vulnerable road users.

It is astonishing how we designed our public spaces around the car. But it is utterly mind-blowing how society seems to accept that status quo!

Our new Near Miss app for tracking high risk travel locations made the news! Check the link from @JessArnoldTV and @wusa9 TV. And if you had a near miss or know of a high risk location for pedestrians, bicyclist and vulnerable road users submit a report. https://t.co/N9Y4Mv7WQX
